What are the crazy people thinking today?

A grateful hat tip to Right Wing Watch for tallying some of the (worst) conservative reaction to the debates. I bet you were just dying to know what the leaders of the crazy brigade were thinking, their bayonets at the ready as they watched the debacle unfold. The answer seems to be “Mitt Romney is divinely inspired!”

Oh my, DIVINELY INSPIRED.   Romney looks kind, truthful and firm.  O looks mean, and like he is a liar..

Because, as the American Family Association knows,

Ok, I’m gonna say it. Obama is demonstrating he knows how to execute the angry black man persona. My gosh, how condescending to speak as he

Eh, screw it. Let’s let the head of the internet’s biggest conspiracy shop put it all in perspective for us:

What difference does it make who won debate? Donald Trump is going to decide the election in 2 days…

Classic. But nobody can top the occasionally-still-allowed-on-television Ann Coulter. Dear networks: and you seek out her political wisdom because why, exactly?

I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.

I have so many questions about the universe conservatives seem to inhabit. Do they have airplanes there too? How is the shopping? Since there is no law of cause and effect, how are sports scores decided?

Restaurant owner receives death threats after declining Romney visit


Culture of something:

The owner of a Denver restaurant who has received death threats after declining a visit by Mitt Romney said Friday that he “could feel the hate in the air” at his business recently.

“On Thursday, it was horrible,” Oscar Aguirre, the owner of Rosa Linda’s Mexican Cafe, told POLITICO. “It was dead. Yesterday during lunch, you could feel the hate in the air.”

Aguirre’s crime was that a Romney aide asked if they could hold an official Romney campaign event there, Aguirre said no thanks, and that was that. But that wasn’t that, because he then started getting emails, and phone calls, from disgruntled conservatives put out that he would do such a horrible thing.

It hasn’t gotten quite as farcical as the ridiculousness that ensued after a Florida pizzeria owner hugged Barack Obama, leading to a nationwide effort by dimwits to give him bad reviews on Yelp, but anything that includes “death threats” is pretty damn bad.

On the other side of things, there was the bakery owner who declined a visit by Joe Biden. It seems like that worked out better, yes?

Back at the bakery, a couple of guys said they’d hoped to see Biden and didn’t care that the VP had been turned away.

“I mean it really doesn’t matter to me. Everyone has their own views so I love the food here anyway. I agree. Everybody’s different so I could care less,” said Spenser Critterton of Radford.

… and then Biden’s secret service detail bought a bunch of cookies.

Really, folks, it’s fine if a small business does not want to host Giant Political Event-Type Thingy. There are many reasons why a business might not want to do such a thing. There are many reasons why they would. If you’re getting worked up over that, you may need to consider whether you are investing your political time wisely.
